U.S. Department Of Education Texas Public School Student/Staff Ethnicity and Race Questionnaire, Internet
*Consumer Comment: Don't Complete the Racist Form
*Consumer Comment: I believe flynrider is correct...
*Consumer Comment: Not convinced.
*Consumer Comment: Disagree
*Consumer Comment: One reason.
*Consumer Suggestion: Please reconsider
It clearly states on the form (go to ritter.tea.state.tx.us/taa./is043009.html to see the form; check under the "For Students" heading) that the parent is not required to complete the form.
Furthermore, it also states that if the parent does not complete the form then,
"the school district employ observer identification as a last resort to gather this information for federal reporting."
So, the US Department of Education is now allowing the School District to look at the child and make an assumption as to the ethnicity/race of the child.
IT WOULD DEFINITELY MAKE MORE SENSE TO COUNT THOSE FAMILIES THAT DECLINE TO RESPOND OUT OF THE STATISTICAL DATA FOR REPORTING PURPOSES!!!
